College dining trending: University sued over food-allergen-related death

Included in a 5 things roundup, a lawsuit was filed against the college in Illinois claiming a freshman died after eating contaminated food at the campus dining hall last summer.

In other news, Franklin & Marshall College formed a partnership with local micro-roaster Square One Coffee. The partnership makes sense to both groups, with the college’s Diplomat Dining already having several local partnerships with produce vendors, and Square One’s representative commenting that that company has been working to expand its reach to other local businesses.
